“All this and price too.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

One mile walk from Union station. Abundant eateries within 1 block walk. Supermarket within 2 block walk that has extensive deli and salad bar, much cheaper wine and beer than any other place you would find in DC as a tourist. It is right on the metro, out the door and twenty steps down. There is a convenience store next door. But, you may never need any of those things. The staff is super and friendly, they have a restaurant and bar, pool and workout room. The building is super secure and relatively quiet for downtown D.C.

Room Tip: I always choose higher floors when in busy cities, to reduce the noise.

I stayed for only 1 night as I was in DC for the interview of a lifetime. I had already spent a lot of money on my flight and couldn't stomach the average $300/night price tags on other major hotel chains in the city. I found a great deal on this hotel through Kayak. I was a little concerned over past reviews about the construction noise and shady location. These were non-issues during my stay.

First of all, the location is great...a mere 1 minute max walk from the NOMA metro stop. I did get back to my room after dark and was a bit worried but there were quite a few metro police hanging at the stop and the area is very well lit and I never once felt unsafe.

I arrived at 1:30 well before the check-in time and it was not an issue. I was given keys to my room right away. I had a VERY large and spacious corner room that did face both the train tracks and the massive building being erected next door. Yes, during the day the construction can be heard, along with other standard "city noise." So that could be an issue if you were going to be sleeping during the day for some reason. The construction did start up again at 7am but I was up well before that.

My room was immaculate. It was clean, updated, spacious, and I found the bed to be very comfortable. I needed a great night's sleep and I had no problem getting one.

I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay here again should I be back in DC for holiday.

I was looking for a hotel for my 10 year old granddaughter and I to stay in Washington DC. After reading countless reviews of hotels and looking at their prices, I choose this one. Best decision about our trip. Safe, very clean, reasonably priced and centrally located to get around. Once we figured out the Metro which is few steps away, we got around town like pros. 7-Eleven and Au Bon Pain which are both next to the hotel were great conveniences. The staff was very eager to help and efficient. They helped us book a tour to Mt. Vernon at the last minute. I wondered what Mandi S' complaint about the hairdryer was. I didn't think there was one, until I discovered it in a black bag inside a black wood stand in the bathroom.

Room Tip: You are not going to spend a lot of time in the room, and you are too tired to worry about noise whe...

Great Service (a #1 priority with me!), great amnities, convenient to Metro and restaurants! Only complaint is the hair dryer and if that is the only thing to fuss about, then I'm being to high maintenance!

We stayed at the Courtyard Washington for two nights 03/28- 03/30/2013. The location was great if you plan on doing a lot of sight seeing and need access to the Metro. It was very difficult to find the hotel in the first place, because it is on a small alley with construction and one-way streets all around it - but once found, it was really nice. There is valet only parking and the valet was very pleasant. But keep in mind, once you turn over your car, you're not seeing it again until you check out -


The room was adequate and clean - the bathroom was clean and everything was neat. Check-in was a breeze. The nicest feature was the location. Even though hard to find the "alley" had everything you'd want close by. The metro was a mere 30 feet from the hotel, there is a 7Eleven for room snacks, an Au Bon Pan for a quick bite, and a 5 Guys Burgers and fries across the street. There was also a yogurt and sandwich place but we didn't make it there.

We did not venture out after dark because I had my young daughter with me and I had heard of possible issues in the area - but to grab access to the Metro and cheap - but good - eats. It was perfect for our sight seeing needs.

Pool and fitness room were small, but again adequate for our budget and needs.

I stay in many hotels especially Marriott properties and I have to say the staff at this Hotel was one of the best I have dealt with over my years of Travel. The Front desk staff went out of their way to ensure that I had a good room and they helped me in finding space to Perform interviews. Thomas, Tony, Darrell and Mike were on top of each request I had and made sure that things went smoothly for my stay. Thanks to them I was able to interview candidates without issue and able to find some good food for lunch. When you travel a great deal it is nice to know that people are willing to go out of their way to help their guests. Great job. The room I stayed in was clean and comfortable and the Gym was small but clean as well. I will be staying here again.
